    1. Which WACs address diversity and collaboration with families? WAC 110-300-0085 and WAC 110-300-0160
    2. What big messages do the WACs give regarding diversity and collaboration? I think a big message from WAC 110-300-0085, is “An early learning provider must determine how the program can best accommodate each child’s individual characteristics, strengths, and needs. The provider must utilize the information in subsection (2) of this section and seek input from family members and staff familiar with a child’s behavior, developmental, and learning patterns.” i feel like this makes it less bias to think what your program can do to better the family and child. i think it will also show the family ‘we are on your side’. from WAC 110-300-0160 i think a big message is: An early learning provider must intervene appropriately to stop biased behavior displayed by children or adults including.
